Please read these terms and conditions carefully. These are the terms that will govern any contract between you and us for the sale of the products displayed on this web site. We reserve the right to amend these terms when necessary.
Please note that it is your responsibility to check that your order is correct, and to accurately supply all relevant information necessary to complete the order as requested.
We are under no obligation to accept your order, but will normally do so where the items are available, the order reflects current pricing and your credit card payment is approved by your credit card company. Your order represents an offer of contract from you only and is not binding until we have sent you an e-mail confirming receipt and acceptance of your order.
We are entitled to withdraw from any order in the case of obvious errors or inaccuracies regarding the products or the order appearing on our web site.
Placing an order is notification of your acceptance of these terms and conditions. In the rare circumstance that a product price has increased between the time of the order and our acceptance of it (or, again rarely, if a delivery charge needed to be applied or amended), we will e-mail you to advise of the change. Your card will never be charged with an amount additional to your original order without your prior written consent. You will, of course, have the right to cancel your order and receive a full refund.
Any contract between us will be governed by Illinois State Law and will be subject to the jurisdiction of the US Courts. All of the copyright in the material, documents, site design, graphics, systems, codes and connections contained on this web site or linked to it and the selection and arrangement thereof are owned by Really Useful Boxes Inc, the web site designers or the publishers of those sites to which this web site links.

We will attempt to ensure that the information available on our web site at any one time is accurate, but cannot guarantee that it will be fault-free. Our web site is provided on a "as is" and "as available" basis. We are not liable to you if we cannot supply a particular item. If you would like us to deliver substitute lines should selected products be unavailable, then you can request this when placing your order.
We do not make any warranties that the web site is secure or is free from infection by viruses or anything else that has contaminated or disruptive properties. We do not accept liability for any errors and omissions and reserve the right to change information, prices and descriptions of listed goods at any time. From time to time certain products may vary in style and material to that shown on the web site. We would do our best to correct errors and omissions as quickly as practicable after being notified of them.
We do not accept any liability for any losses or claims arising from any liability to access our web site or any failure to complete a transaction. Our total liability in contract, tort (including negligence or breach of statutory duty), misrepresentation or otherwise, arising in connection with the supply of products or contemplated supply shall be limited to the total price of the products purchased in respect of any claims.
We will not be liable for any indirect or consequential loss (whether for loss of profits, loss of business, depletion of goodwill or otherwise) or damage of any kind in contract, tort or otherwise arising out of the use of the web site or use of the products or services.
You acknowledge that it is not usually possible to detect from inspection of an internet transmission whether the original of it had been forged, wrongfully altered or otherwise misused or where the transmission details such as name of sender, sender's e-mail address, or date and time of transmission imprinted on it automatically are genuine, and you therefore agree to indemnify us against any actions, proceedings, damages, costs, claims, demands or losses whatsoever arising from your so acting, obeying or otherwise dealing in accordance with any such Internet transmission appearing to have been so furnished by you or on your behalf in the event that the said Internet transmission has been produced by forgery, wrongful alteration or other misuse of the original transmission or that said transmission details appear on it are not genuine.
Nothing in these terms excludes or limits our liability for death or personal injury caused by our negligence or fraudulent misrepresentation.
These terms and conditions do not affect your statutory rights.

You are responsible for the products once they have been delivered. You will be the owner of the products once we have received payment in full for the products.

If you then wish to cancel the order, we will refund the full amount minus the delivery charge (charged at cost). If we do not hear from you within 30 working days we will cancel the order and refund your payment by way of a credit to your credit/debit card, minus the shipping charge. Our liability for non-delivery of the products shall be limited to replacing the product within reasonable time.
Unfortunately we are unable to accept any amendments to orders once they have been placed.
